Great food, good service and an incredibly noisy environment. Best for a group, especially if they care about good food.
Restaurant is excellent. The health inspector just happened to pop in that night which caused a slight delay in service, but the waitress kept us updated and offered us the first round of the drinks on the house. The chips are excellent and so are the tacos!
Great tacos and guacamole. Good service. Ask to sit in the back, the front is too noisy.
Our waiter Naz (?) was amazing and the food was delicious.
Our waitress was amazing, very personable and attentive. It’s very close quarters so don’t recommend for a first date if you’re looking to have a good conversation because it gets very loud very fast. But other than that it was great! Food was delicious and so were the margaritas!
Creative and delicious. Pastrami tacos were really good and satisfy that pastrami craving without requiring a giant sandwich. Loved the Brussels sprouts tacos and sopes with smoked plantains. Super loud - luckily we went late so it improved as tables started clearing out.
Absolutely fabulous - we ordered a lot of items, all were very good, mostly great!!! Excellent waiter, the four of us were very happy with our experience - Great job! I'll be back when in the neighborhood.
the service was terrible. The food was terrible and the drinks were terrible.
Best place in Nyc.
Guacamole was delicious. Was a bit cramped, but the food was really good.
Keep your receipt - I was overcharged by $15 and had to speak with a managed to get a refund. That soured the entire experience for me
Great place to grab a meal. Service was very fast, but not rushed. Food was absolutely amazing and plentiful. Drinks we're incredible. Will definitely go again.
I would highly recommend. Great staff presence from front to back of the house! Our server was very attentive. Love the simple menu. Food and cocktails were delicious! Ambience is perfect even for kids. The restaurant was busy but we did not feel overwhelmed at all. Place was simply decorated, and clean. Two thumbs up!
Food and service was amazing!
Guacamole and cashew salsa are to die for. Brussel sprout tacos are delicious !! One of my favorites restaurants. Our server, Luke is great ! He's been my server everytime I dine. Always professional and hospitable !
Really nice tacos! Large variety of Mexican beers!
Don’t be late, they remove your reservation after 15mins
Great service, and AMAZING food! Duck carnitas tacos are a must, as is the seven salsas starter.
It was both my friend very first time there, and they absolutely loved everything. The food, the drinks and the service was exceptional. We’ll definitely be back!
Service was great. Food was amazing and tequila options were outstanding. A little pricey but the quality is there.
Guacamole, tacos and drinks are always consistent and good ! Dessert was small, overpriced and not that great
We highly recommend Empellon Taqueria and will definitely come back here again. OUr waitress was extremely helpful in suggesting the most popular dishes. It is wonderful place for a group. The chips with the 7 different types of salsa are a must but the tacos are excellent- particularly the lobster and the short ribs! WE also had the sweet potato flautas and they were delicious! Next time we must try the brussel sprout tacos! My son who lives in NYC loved it and we will definitely come back here again-- it was so much fun with delicious food! Great find!
Food was amazing, but definitely on the pricier side for the (small) portions.
Worse Mexican restaurant ever!! Horrible service, super noisy and is not good at all actually for the price is bad totally overpriced Tacos N 1 is too much better for 1/4 of the price.
Please don’t go to this restaurant, don’t waste your money.
We felt rushed & cramped at our table for 9 as dirty plates not cleared before food arrived all at once which was overwhelming as we had explained we were sharing everything; they also didn't remember it was noted as a birthday, so no candle or anything in my husband's dessert.
Our waitress was amazing. She engaged our 4-year-old in multiple conversations and treated him like an adult. Overall, we had perhaps the best service of any restaurant I have ever been to.
We can't wait to get back. We we treated exceptional well by staff and management. Love this place
Good tacos... music a bit too loud
Thank you Stefanie. You are awesome! Only thing missing was a hug from you!!! Hope to see you soon. Spencer
Truly enjoyable evening celebrating my daughter’s birthday!!
Waitress was inattentive and then totally disappeared 15 minutes after taking our order. After half an hour of being ignored and not receiving our food, after the table next t ours got their food, we flagged down a busboy who was helpful. But the good was delicious
Our server Luke was so friendly and helpful! Made our experience wonderful.
The Sunday Prix Fixe was great - a lot of bang for your buck!
Amazing service, delicious food and cocktails, and most importantly, amazing service!
Excellent as usual. Super friendly staff, great menu and some of the best margaritas in town. A solid favourite of ours!
The hostess and the wait staff were incredibly helpful to our large party. Food was great!
The food. Every dish from the tacos to the impossibly unique desserts to each individual salsa sustained a distinct and exquisite flavor. The service can be rushed or slow, the space is cramped and sometimes loud, but it's totally worth it for the food. And drinks - the classic margarita is really the only one you need.
Get the salsa sampler. Get some margs. Chill. One of my go-to happy hour joints. Definitely delicious food.
Very nice with friendly staff. The service was very good and the tacos were definitely the best things on the menu. The sides weren't as memorable but the tacos made it worth it.
Wonderful food and delicious margaritas!
